Use Your Voice...Earth Hour 2012

Tonight marks the sixth year of Earth Hour the worlwide event organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to remind us that, we can all make a difference to help the environment. Earth Hour was conceived by WWF and The Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, when 2.2 million residents of Sydney participated by turning off all non-essential lights. Following Sydney's lead at 8:30 pm on the last March of the year millions of people in more than 131 countries have banded together in solidarity for Mother Nature and turned off the lights. I have done it each year since and encourage you tonight to turn off the lights, put a few candles on for an hour. In small ways we are all capable of big things, and it is also a nice way to really disconnect for an evening and just be and connect to something bigger than ourselves.
